Municipal Recycling and Waste Contracts - 2021 Industry Update | FREE to Members

When:  Nov 30, 2021 from 01:00 PM to 02:30 PM (ET)

The recycling and waste industry is far from “normal” in 2021, as we navigate multi-year challenges. The impacts of the pandemic and work-from-home lifestyle changes remain real, while supply chain issues hit new contract startups hard. Commodities are on the rise, and annual CPI indices are beginning to outpace industry costs, but most cities are not positioned to take advantage. A continuation of the series of ICMA Webinars from Republic Services, we will update you on current market dynamics and look at the economic and program impacts from current events. We will also offer suggestions on how cities can structure more successful partnerships to address these new market realities and keep programs durable in your community.

You and your staff will learn:

  • What are the current trends and impacts from the pandemic, China Sword, and other industry topics, and how do they impact my Municipality?
  • What are the short term and longer-term impacts of these topics on the recycling and waste industry?
  • How can we better structure long term contracts going forward to ensure municipalities are positioned to maximize their upside?


  • Pete Keller – Vice President, Recycling and Sustainability, Republic Services
  • Richard Coupland – Vice President, Municipal Sales, Republic Services

This webinar is complimentary for ICMA members thanks to the sponsorship of an ICMA Strategic Partner, Hagerty, who will have access to registration information.
